In the land of paradise beaches

KH-KIPPER carries out a large delivery of tippers to Southeast Asia. Although the Philippines is known for its paradise beaches, surely the tippers will not rest, but will work hard in the local coal mine. One of the country’s largest energy suppliers has ordered several dozen of such tippers.

Despite the global trend to reduce CO2 emissions, the Philippines is a country that utilizes this relatively cheap raw material, i.e. coal. In 2021, coal consumption was 58% in power generation, but this cheap resource is also used in other Philippine industries.

The tippers travel a long way from Poland to the Philippine mine. Road and sea transport with a change in Germany and Singapore takes several weeks before the equipment reaches its destination.

The construction is a classic rectangular body designed for the transport of hard coal, lignite or anthracite with a fraction of 0.0-300 mm. The large body volume of 32 m3 allows you to load the maximum amount of coal which is a relatively light cargo.

High-quality HARDOX 450 steel was used for the production of the body. The material ensures high resistance to abrasion and point impacts, extends the life of the body and the period of trouble-free operation of the vehicle. Reliable construction is extremely important if the tipper works in difficult operating conditions or in the absence of a proper service infrastructure.

The wheels have been equipped with special blades that knock out stones on an ongoing basis while driving to reduce unnecessary tire damage.

Profiles reinforcing the side boards and the rear board stiffen the simple construction of the body and give it adequate strength. Its stiffness during loading and transport is increased by two chains permanently mounted between the side boards.

The top-hinged tailgate opens automatically when unloading.

Coal is transported all year round, also during the rainy season which lasts here from mid-May to November. To minimize coal build-up in the corners of the body, the front wall is slightly slanted so that the load slides easily over it. The unloading of sticky material is additionally facilitated by heating the floor with exhaust fumes.
